We start-off with a free, catered breakfast, and our six scholarship winners, who will receive a total of $4,500 in awards, will be announced. We are hoping that our local scholarship winners will be present for you to meet.

The Italian Genealogical Group is dedicated to furthering Italian family history and genealogy. We are a non-profit organization, operating through member efforts. We work to educate members and the public in the methodology of finding one's roots. Our goal is to empower you in your search for family records by providing the tools and expertise needed.

We are happy to grow our membership and would love to have you as one of our members. If you are interested in researching your Italian heritage, please join us. Come and share your experiences with those who range from beginners to professional genealogists.  Discover that family history is an interesting, rewarding hobby that will enable you to discover your past and preserve your heritage for future generations.

Our Bethpage chapter meets on the second Saturday of each month from September to June.  Visitors are always welcome.

We invite you to explore our extensive databases compiled by our many volunteers. The IGG is grateful to accept tax-deductible donations to help defray the cost of providing these databases and allow us to add to our available data and links.

Donations can be made to the Italian Genealogical Group.
